Experience

Summary

I've been working as a freelance writer and editor since 2012, working on pieces ranging from critical essays, to poetry, to commissioned, content-focused digital news pieces. As both writer and editor I'm able to work quickly, to deadline and commission.

Work history

Sex Editor
I commissioned work and received incoming pitches to publish two new pieces of content weekly. This involved liaising with writers, profiling artists, and writing content myself to maintain a consistent high standard across the magazine's Sex section.
The Lifted Brow Magazine
Editorial Intern
I read submissions and worked closely with one writer over the three-month period to prepare her essay for publication. I wrote copy, contacted advertisers and and assisted with social media promotion, event organisation and distribution.

Bruce Jenner And The Public Perception Of Trans

In this essay, I speak with three trans women about the ethics of media representation of lived transgender experiences in the wake of Caitlyn Jenner's now infamous Diane Sawyer interview, in which she came out as a trans woman.

Fake It Til You Make It: On Manliness And Clinical Depression

I interview performance artists and real-life couple Bryony Kimmings and Tim Grayburn about their work "Fake It Til You Make It" and their activism surrounding the prevalence of clinical depression among men in today's society.
